Pro Advice for Stay On! Eyeliner and How to Apply it

Question from Ana in Calgary Alberta ON
—>>Beauty question for Hairess Rita:
“What’s the best eyeliner makeup product to prevent smudges? Right now I use L’OREAL Voluminous smoldering pencil eyeliner & I constantly have to check a mirror to dap off black smudges on my eyes balls through out the day. Not pretty, why does it do that?? Are liquid eyeliners any better?”


Answer- Well Ana,  with so many eyeliner options, here is non confusing answer. You said you like using  a pencil.
I agree, easy application and you can smudge it for a smoky look after you draw it on  (use a Qtip to smudge or yr ring finger after drawing a line)

A few options are Smashbox Limitless Waterproff Eyeliner (I use Black Onyx) about $20 w built in sharpener. Worth every penny! AND make sure to keep the lid on or it will dry out the product. And it will feel dry, scratch your eyes  and not work well!

Here are the Basics:

* kohl liners stay on longer

* waterproof is great but u will need a waterproof make-up remover

* use an eye primer w concealer before applying liner so you don’t look like you got punched in the eye!

Or what I also use which makes my eye makeup stay on the longest !
Is “wet to dry” shadows. The secret here is in the brush…. I use a flat full brush then blend w fingers. I have this fav brush in my pro make-up kit since high school. From M.A.C…of course!

A cheap

brand that actually works well /high pigment comes from shoppers drug mart called Essence.


Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes Ana!
